Dogs

Hermione | R322

Hermoine female spainel crossFemale, Young, Medium

This is Hermione’s third time at the SPA; her two previous adoptions did not work out for very different reasons, and essentially there is nothing wrong with Hermione at all. The first time her adopter had a health issue, but she informed us that Hermione never strayed from her side on walks. She lived in an apartment, and so was always with her dog on walks. Hermione’s next home had a garden, and so we now know that if left alone for too long, Hermione gets bored and goes wandering! So we are looking for someone who either lives in an apartment with lots of time for walks, or someone with a well-enclosed garden! Hermione is a spaniel cross who has a black speckled body but a brown head! A stunning and sociable girl, she was born in April 2015.

Tilly | R377

Tilly female terrier crossFemale, Young, Medium

Tilly was adopted from the SPA 10 days after arriving in July, the woman who wanted her fell in love while Tilly who was still in the pound, and absolutely couldn’t wait to take her home. It was a shock to see her back at the SPA 6 days later. Far from being at home all day, as she told us was the case, this woman was out A LOT! In fact the very day she took Tilly home, she went out with friends. No, Tilly did not destroy or mess in the house, but she did bark, and it is for this reason that she came back. Tilly was born in October 2016, she is a fox terrier cross and is absolutely adorable. She would love a family who does not leave her alone too much, at least not before she has had time to feel at home!

Doc | R341

Doc male jack russell crossMale, Mature, Small

Doc is a small and elderly tricoloured Jack russell who was brought to the SPA in mid July. He is identified by tattoo, but his owners are not answering their phone. Are they away on holiday? Have they moved house? Have they deliberately lost their dog? Perhaps we will never know. However as the 10 days’ pound time are up, we are looking for a new home for Doc. He was born in May 2008, and is a great little chap! Let us know if you would like more information about Doc.

Sam | R336

Sam male shepherd crossMale, Young, Large

Found with his friend Lilo in a local village and brought to the SPA, we know Sam’s name as he supposedly had a piece of paper with his name on it stuck to his fur. How strange! In any case, this dog is very handsome and very very handsome. He is a shepherd cross, but his colouring is just stunning. All deep russets and browns, Sam has a chunky head and a furrowed brow; perhaps he is puzzled as to what he is doing at the SPA! Let’s get him a home, people!

Darby | R329

Darby male Blue de JuraMale, Young, Medium

Darby has a long road ahead of him, and although the SPA is not the best place for him, it is clearly far far better than wherever he was before. Presumably this Blue de Jura has escaped (or been dumped) by a hunter; he is terrified of his own shadow, and as he is only a year old, we can probably not even imagine the life he had before arriving. For now this lad is being left mostly in peace, fed regularly and reassured by the presence of other dogs and the soothing tones of the staff and volunteers. We will be looking for a very special home for this lad, but as he is so beautiful, we are hoping that someone lovely might wish to take him on sooner rather than later.

Mina | R326

Mina female boxer crossFemale, Young, Medium

Boxer cross Mina is a DRC favourite. In fact she is a favourite of just about everyone who has met her and it is a mystery as to why she is still at the SPA. Mina was found and brought in from a nearby village. As she was microchipped, the SPA phoned her family, who said that they were unlikely to reclaim her, but the children would be upset, so perhaps they would have no choice. Well, it looks like the kids were given other ways to amuse themselves; a cuddly toy or a computer game, perhaps! Mina is a fabulous girl. She was born in January 2016 and is fine with dogs, cats and children. She is perfect on the lead, and if you stop for any reason, she waits patiently by your side. She loves affection and will spend hours being stroked. Mina deserves a wonderful home, and anyone adopting her will be very lucky indeed.

Fax | R312

FaxMale, Young, Medium

Fax is the kind of dog who in many ways epitomises what the SPA is about. Found as a stray at the age of 18 months, Fax has clearly had no human contact at all; or at least not positive contact. He is absolutely terrified and will completely freeze whenever he is touched. He would rather just be left alone, as that way at least nothing bad can happen. This is really sad to see, and of course we are all doing our best to show him how wonderful life can be. Fax will walk on a lead, particularly if there is another dog nearby. In fact he will probably need a canine mentor in his new home in order to make any real progress. If you have a dog already and/or lots of patience, Fax will be a very rewarding friend.

Vegas | R309

VegasMale, Young, Large

Vegas is one of those dogs that really draws the eye. He has really unusual markings and whatever mix he is has really turned out well. The height of a German shepherd, but with a rough coat and more than a touch of griffon about him, Vegas had an owner until fairly recently. She brought him to the SPA claiming to have found him, however thanks to a local vet, who recognised the dog, we know the truth. I guess people will do anything they can to avoid taking responsibility for their actions. Vegas is good on the lead, good with people and an all round lovely boy. He was born in January 2013 and is ready for a new home with someone much nicer than his last owner!

Diesel R304

DieselMale, Young, Large

Diesel should not really be at the SPA. He had an owner, but when Diesel was found straying in his village, they refused to collect him. We hate it when this happens, but perhaps the only way forward is to agree that perhaps the owner does not love his dog as much as he should. And Diesel is so worthy of love! He is a fabulous looking dark and pale shepherd/border collie cross who is very gentle and affectionate. His date of birth is estimated as being in November 2016, so although this boy is more or less fully grown, he is still a very young dog who will adapt quickly to his new home. He is good with other dogs, both male and female and his adoption fee is €170.

Taoni | R303

Tanoi female border collie crossFemale, Young, Medium

Taoni is a border collie who was found and brought to the refuge, so sadly we don’t know anything about her history. However from her behaviour so far, we guess that she has had quite a sheltered life, as although hugely affectionate, she remains fairly timid at first. Taoni was born in June 2012, and is a little bit overweight, so wherever she was before the SPA, she was well fed. She is fine with other dogs, does not pull on the lead, and in fact when two walkers accidentally let go of her lead, her only thought was to return to the refuge, where she sat down outside her kennel waiting for them to let her back in. Taoni will make a great family pet, she is absolutely adorable!
